How occupied are Australia's cricketers?

Australia have played eight Tests, 16 ODIs and 15 T20Is to this point in the 2018-19 contract period that keeps running from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. They will play eight more ODIs preceding June 30. That does exclude the training matches ahead of the pack up to the World Cup. 

Based off the booked installations in the World Cup after July 1, the Ashes arrangement, the late spring timetable discharged by CA, and the Future Tours Program, in the 2019-20 contract period Australia seems set to play 12 Tests (albeit two against Bangladesh are yet to be affirmed and stay in uncertainty), 13 ODIs (conceivably 15 if Australia make the World Cup last) and 15 T20Is, for an aggregate of 88 planned days (90 conceivable).

The Batsmen 

With the suspension of Steve Smith and David Warner a year ago there were just three Australia batsman who played every one of the three arrangements for Australia over the 2018-19 contract period. 

Aaron Finch has played progressively worldwide amusements, 36, and more days, 55, than some other Australian player over the period, and looks set to play eight more. He has played five Tests, 16 ODIs and 15 T20Is in the period. Travis Head played eight Tests, three ODIs and five T20Is, for 44 all out days, however won't play in the World Cup. However, Head played more long periods of top notch, List An and T20 cricket, 100, than some other player in world cricket. Finch was tenth on that rundown with 86. By examination, Langer played 130 days of cricket in 2006-07. 

Dwindle Hands comb played three Tests, 13 ODIs and two T20Is, for 30 complete days, yet in addition won't highlight in the World Cup. Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh have not played any T20Is in the most recent year but rather have played 49 and 42 days separately over the period, to be among the main four batsmen as far as days played. 

By correlation, India skipper Virat Kohli played 75 days of universal cricket in a similar period. He will play the majority of India's World Cup matches. Sri Lanka batsman Kusal Mendis played 67. Britain's Joe Root had played 64 days before the beginning of the English season. There are 16 players who have played more global cricket over the period than Finch and 29 more than Khawaja. 

Smith and Warner are probably going to be the main players conceivably picked for each of the three arrangements throughout the following year yet it is exceptionally far-fetched they will play each diversion. Finch will slip well down the rundown given he is no longer in the Test group. 

Shaun Marsh is presently just a one-position player and turns 36 in July. He got a CA contract for 2019-20 yet except if he is raised again into the Test side he may just play 13 of the 88 planned days. It ought to be noted, Cricket Australia contributed one of the 20 national contracts in 2018-19 to Matt Renshaw and he didn't play a solitary amusement for Australia in the period.
